Loddon Valley Link



Welcome to the December January double issue of the Loddon Valley Link.
It’s been a successful year for us at the Link. We’ve seen a few changes and we’ve improved the magazine (we think) looking forward to the increased circulation from all the new housing development happening around us. We’ve upped the ad revenue to enable us to keep up standards and ensure we can give money to our churches as well as the local community. All of this relies on you, our advertisers, to keep the ads coming in and you, our regular contributors, to keep the magazine interesting, readable and relevant. A big thank you to you all.
Contributors please note that next year we’re moving the article submission deadline to the 14th of the month. This will give the editor a bit of extra time especially on the ’short’ months.
As previously mentioned we’re still looking for help to keep things going. If you can spend a bit of time to contribute ideas and experience on the committee or better yet help edit the magazine please get in touch.
Our cover photo this month is from Lydia Rees. Please keep your photos coming in. as we’ll be running our annual cover photo competition

The Loddon Valley Link is compiled and edited entirely by volunteers who live in the local community and take part in its activities. It is hand distributed by volunteer neighbours to over 2,000 houses across the parishes of Sherfield on Loddon, Sherfield Park, Stratfield Saye, Hartley Wespall and Stratfield Turgis. It is available online at loddonvalleylink.org.uk. We return any profits to the community in the form of grants, which amounted to nearly £3,000 last year.
